Bombarding another country with the “Mother Of All Bombs” – Who on earth gave anyone the right to do so?

As soon as I read about the news of the so-called Super Power bombarding “once again” the territorial jurisdiction of another country, without even taking consent of the “elected government” of that very country, then these words from my other blog “A ‘qualified’ apology by Mr. Tony Blair for Iraq invasion – Was it even an apology “in real sense”?”, immediately honked in my mind – “Invading other countries to showcase the world that we are a Super Power is supposed to be the favourite pass time of some of the leaders, right?”. These words aptly fit in today’s time as well. Alas! Nothing actually changed in all these years.

First of all, let me make it very clear that I am not against any ‘legal’ Anti-Terrorism step taken in any part of the world. Do note that the stress herewith is on the word ‘legal’ and invading another country in the name of peace, without even taking the consent of the “peace loving” government of that very country, couldn’t be justified as a legal step, by any stretch. On the contrary, if the government of any country is not “peace-loving” and is actually helping terrorism to breed on its soil, then all the peace-loving countries have every right to take action, without obtaining prior permission of the ruling government of that nation, which apparently doesn’t believe in a peaceful world, but not otherwise.

In fact in my other blog “Yes, I am helping the Terrorists”, I have proposed a Joint Anti-Terrorism model and formation of a Global Special Task Force (GSTF). The prerequisite for this model is the prior permission of the Head of that respective peace-loving country, whose territorial jurisdiction the GSTF proposes to enter. This is the legal way of executing such critical missions. One can’t just decide solely on their own, and, on one fine day, proceed to bombard the land of any other nation, simply to flaunt their military power. This is seriously not acceptable and such one-sided step will never ever be able to achieve the mission of peace if that’s what their ultimate motive is, rather it will create hatred and will prompt other countries to call for a war.

Whoever is silent on United States of America’s (USA’s) recent bombarding on the land of Afghanistan, thinking that this is not against them or their nation, should note that tomorrow it could be against them or their nation as well. Do remember that if you don’t oppose any unlawful act now, then you are accepting the dominance of the countries and rulers who are intoxicated in the influence of power. So it’s my earnest request to each and every peace-loving individual and country to very strongly oppose this unjustifiable act of USA, wherein a lot many innocent civilians got killed and were forced to be a victim of someone’s arrogance.

India is a “Peace Loving” nation and also has friendly relations with Afghanistan, so without fail we should stand by the side of Afghanistan government, as well as, the innocent people residing over there. How could a nation, whose Father was a firm believer of Peace and Non-Violence, stay quiet on this illegal act of bombarding any country with the Mother of All Bombs? If any of us think that staying quiet against this act of USA will help us in building our relations strong with them, then sorry to say but we are living in a fool’s paradise. It’s a high time we take a strong stand against any kind of injustice taking place in any part of the world or else the hammer is going to hit hard on us sooner or later.

Mr. Donald Trump this common man very strongly opposes your step of bombarding a peace-loving nation without their permission. Just because you are the President of a so-called Super Power doesn’t mean that you have all the right to intrude the territorial frontiers of any other nation. In the name of peace, no one is authorized to take such steps solely on their own wish. For your kind information, Super Power is not about displaying that you can intrude any nation and bombard them without their permission.

We all should remember that there is a Supreme Soul up there, who has the real Super Power and in front of that Supreme Soul, our power is negligible. So next time even before thinking of taking such steps solely out of arrogance, keep in mind that we are just puppets in the hands of Supreme Soul and one day our arrogance could be the reason of our downfall too.

Let us all strive together to make this world a peaceful place to live in. Live and let others live peacefully too. I wish that the Almighty bless us with good sense.

God bless you all!

Stay in touch.

Stop playing the Victim Card – Will you?

If you want to achieve something remarkable in life than work really hard towards it and simply let your work speak. The world should recognize you by your work and nothing else. Let your work be evaluated solely based on your performance rather than your unfortunate past. You may have been a victim of any of the circumstances that you encountered during the journey of your life, but don’t ever try to cash on your past or for that reason let anyone else take advantage of the same.

Nowadays, if we look around, then we will realize that present marketing world likes to cash a lot on the victim card. Just watch any of the reality shows being telecast on Television/Internet and you will come to know that how the victim card is being overly used in the marketing world. And this is not only restricted to the reel world, but the real world is equally infected with such kind of publicity tactics, wherein someone’s unfortunate past is used as a means to publicize their work.

I do agree that in spite of being a victim, you came out as a winner or a survivor. And for that reason, your life is definitely a motivation for millions of us and indeed we do respect your courage and attitude. But still, it doesn’t mean that your work should always have a layer of your unfortunate past, for it to get noticed. Your personality and your good work are enough a reason for the world to recognize your talent. So just stop playing the victim card, every now and then.

On the one hand, you don’t want the sympathies of others, while, on the other hand, when it comes to marketing your work, you don’t even hesitate for a second before playing your victim card. Isn’t this a sheer case of double standards? Isn’t all such acts equivalent to cheap publicity? If you believe that you have worked really hard then do note that you certainly don’t need such emotional marketing strategies to grab the attention of others.

Do mind that true professionals will never let anything else supersede their work. Did you ever see a successful person talking about their difficult past, about their struggles or about the unfortunate events of their life, every time before showcasing their work or their talent? No, they don’t talk about all such things before walking out in the playground; rather they just let their bat hit the home run. But yes, they do talk about all these things in their autobiography, in motivational speeches or when they are asked about it. And that is how it should be like.

I do hope that henceforth we will maintain our dignity and not play the victim card just for seeking attention. I mean most of us in order to achieve something in our life have to pass all the tests that life throws towards us. So everyone deserves their work to be treated and evaluated at par, rather than someone getting a biased decision based on their emotional appeals. Let the good work win the race.

I wish that the Almighty give enough strength to each one of us for overcoming all the odds in our life and grant us with good sense. Do take a very good care of yourself and stay safe always.

Be in touch.

God Bless you all!

Being a Superpower is not about building walls against the entire world

Being a Superpower is not about attacking any country or a person. Being a Superpower is not about humiliating the respected dignities, personalities and common people of other countries. Being a Superpower is not about treating everyone else as inferior. Being a Superpower is not about carrying an ego that holds a person from apologizing for their own wrong deeds. Being a Superpower is absolutely not about building walls against the entire world.

Human Being is a social animal. We humans have to live together and breed a society that collectively develops. If any of the human beings thinks that they can live and progress all alone, keeping aside the interest of all other living beings, then sorry to say, but they are living an unrealistic dream. We can’t be so self-centred that what we care about is just our own ambitions and nothing else. Humanity is also about caring for others.

Similarly, if any nation wants to make progress solely on its own, then it is free to do so, but that is practically impossible. In this era of globalization no one can stay aloof and make progress. Each one of us is dependent on others for something or the other. If any nation dares to think that it’s a Superpower and is self-sufficient in all respect then it will be the biggest mistake of that nation. Economies of the entire world are dependent on each other. It is a cycle and hence when one is impacted the other is bound to be affected by it. We can’t take decisions in isolation, especially those which have a global impact. If still, someone tries to do that, then they should be ready to bear the consequences of the same in the long run.

No doubt it’s the right of any nation to protect their frontiers, and for that, if required, they are also free to build walls at their territorial boundaries (in consent with the neighbouring nation). However, if any leader is adamant and doesn’t consider the interests of other nations, doesn’t care about nations who are dependent on them or have friendly relations with them from centuries, while making and implementing the policies of their nation, then, in fact, they are building walls in the hearts of the entire world.

Throwing away the people from any nation or restricting entry into a nation could be a temporary boost up for that nation’s economy. But such nations should think that in this time of World Wide Web and oceans of opportunities available in every part of the world, will any country be able to restrict talented people from making their presence felt? By such acts, they will not only part away with the talents working for them but also widen the gap between nations for any future tie-ups.

Mr. President, United States of America (USA), it’s a genuine advice from a common man, that sooner the better you realize it that your attitude and steps are leading you nowhere else but to a steep downfall. By your egoistic behaviour and absurd decisions, you are harming no one else but your own country, people, party and yourself too. No doubt the entire world and their economies are going to be badly impacted by your insensitive decisions and rude behaviour, but in turn, it will surely have a larger negative effect on the USA and its economy too. Just wait and watch for the future to reveal the consequences of your steps.

Do remember that “Superpower is all about respecting every being and embracing the world with open arms”. Wish the leaders of the so-called Superpower nations would have read, understood and followed the couplet of the great saint Kabir Das Ji – “Bada hua toh kya hua jaisey pedh khajoor, panchi ko chaya nahi, phal lagey ati door” (In vain is the eminence, just like a date tree, no shade for travellers, fruit is hard to reach). I also hope that the egoistic souls have heard the famous quote of Confucius “The green reed which bends in the wind is stronger than the mighty oak which breaks in a storm.”

At last, I would like to point out that the best part of Democracy is that a government is elected only for a specific duration. However, the bad part is that some leaders could ruin the fate of the entire nation and its citizens during this period available to them. So it is up to the awaken citizens of every nation to keep a watch on all those whom they have elected to rule over them for the next term. If the citizens don’t stand against the wrong decisions of their rulers then no one else would be able to save them and their nation. At the same time, the entire world should come together and raise their voice against the absurd policies of any nation which impacts the whole world. If the entire world doesn’t register their protest against such acts now, then they will give an indication to the Superpower nations that they are willing to get oppressed by them in the near future. It’s a high time for all of us to speak against the wrong acts of any person/nation whoever it may be.

Always keep this in mind that “There is and will always be only one Superpower – the Almighty God”. I wish that the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

God Bless you all!

Be in touch.

Assent to Ordinance on Jallikattu – Opening of a Pandora Box

In yet another suicidal attempt (after demonetisation) the present Central Government has given its assent to the Tamil Naidu state’s ordinance on Jallikattu (a traditional sport involving bull). By passing an ordinance for permitting the celebration of Jallikattu, the Indian Government has opened up a Pandora Box, which is definitely going to increase their trouble in the near future. Just wait and watch while a lot many demonstrations and demands for the passing of such kind of ordinances are on its way, to flood the Central Government from every corner of the country in the near future. God knows who advice Mr. Pradhan Sevak to take such decisions.

In the current scenario, a question does pop up in the minds of many of us that when the Honourable Court has banned an activity and is yet to decide on a serious issue then what was the urgency to pass an ordinance in the matter concerned? Was this move politically motivated or was it taken sheer out of public concern? If at all it was taken after keeping public concern in mind then does this move somewhere exhibits that our politicians think that the Honourable Courts are not bothered about the public sentiments and does not take into account the public concerns before passing any judgement?

Herewith, I would like to raise a very serious concern with regard to the autonomy of the courts. Aren’t ordinances like this nothing but a ‘legalised’ way of contempt of court? Just because there is a right available to bring an ordinance in order to surpass the orders of the courts, is it justifiable to make use of this right in such matters as well? Isn’t it a threat to the very existence of the courts in any country? What is the need of having courts when the government themselves can decide and finalize the case, which is still pending before the court of law? It’s a high time for the courts to take a note of the same and stand for their existence.

The politicians preach us to respect the orders of the Honourable Courts but it seems that when it comes to politics they don’t even think for a second, before going against any kind of court orders. If they actually acted as they preach, then instead of giving their consent on the ordinance, wasn’t it feasible for the “law abiding” politicians to plead in front of the court with their logical points and let this serious issue be decided only by the Honourable Court? If courts can open at odd hours to decide about the hanging of a terrorist then we are in a far better position to be heard and matters with which public sentiments are attached could indeed be decided on a high priority.

I would like to urge that instead of coming up with ideas like banning an organisation which works for the rights of animals, it would be appropriate if we can come up with ideas which would enable us to carry on our traditions, without ‘intentionally’ torturing and harming any of the living beings for our enjoyment. There is always a mid peaceful way to solve such kind of issues, like in the present case it would have been appropriate to conduct the sport without torturing or harming the animals, as well as, applying the utmost safety parameters.

Torturing or causing harm to other living beings, in the name of tradition, could not be allowed at all. If the traditions need to be changed for the betterment of our society then we should indeed be ready for that. Do remember that right to live freely is the fundamental right of every living being and not alone humans. Live and let others live peacefully too.

I wish that the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

One Rank One Pension (OROP) – Why so much tension?

One Rank One Pension (OROP), in simple terms, means the same pension to all those who retired from the same rank and served for the same duration. I am sure that any sane mind wouldn’t argue with the logic of having an identical pension for the identical grade. It’s indeed a step towards equality. I totally agree with the point that there could be differences in opinion between the government and those affected by OROP, on various issues like how/when/what all to include in the OROP scheme. However, I fail to understand, that what could be the reason behind lingering on such important issue for that long? Is it so difficult to resolve sensitive issues peacefully, without any casualties?

OROP, at present, seems to be a reason for a lot of tension for the Indian Government, which came into power with majority seats. I hope the Central Government remembers that to implement OROP was one of their pre-election promises. Or, who knows, maybe OROP was one of their Jumlas, on which they won the election, and now, like all other Jumlas, this one is also getting stuck in their neck. What an irony, that on one hand, Mr. Pradhan Sevak urges the nation not to forget our soldiers, and, on the other hand, the Central Government applies such a casual approach towards the demands of our soldiers. If the Central Government was so thoughtful about our soldiers then wasn’t resolving this issue long back, one of their responsibilities? Now, would the government let us know that who is responsible for aggravating this issue to such an extent?

Do remember that when the soldiers, who protect us, themselves have to protest for their rights, then the nation, as a whole, needs to introspect whether we are heading in the right direction or not. The armed forces are always ready to give away their life, for the love of their nation and what they get in return, meager salary? Are they stupid to do so? Don’t they love their life? Don’t they love their family? Is anyone of us ready to sacrifice our life for a meager salary? Then what makes these soldiers live and fight in inhuman conditions? It’s nothing else than pure patriotism that ignites their soul. Their love towards the nation is way above the love for anything else. Salute to their attitude. I know that we can never be like them, but at least, we can show some respect by caring for their genuine demands, right? Or is it too much to ask for?

OROP is the “Mann ki Baat” of the entire nation. I do hope that in the same way, it’s the “Mann ki Baat” of our Pradhan Sevak too. I further hope that Mr. Pradhan Sevak, who is, fortunately, a good speaker too, at least makes an attempt to convince the “true heroes of our nation” that they will get what they deserve in “due time”. However, without any fail, this “due time” should be a reasonably short time because the soldiers are already waiting and protesting since a very long time for OROP to get implemented, in its true spirit.

Herewith, let me make it very clear, that I am not supporting any kind of suicide, but at least we should be sensible enough not to do politics on someone’s death. It sometimes makes me think that can we go to any extent to divert the minds of common citizens from the actual issue or what. Nevertheless, I do hope that all the issues with regard to OROP gets sorted out soon and may there be equality all around. Let us build the world where everyone gets what they deserve.

I wish that the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

God bless you all!

Ayodhya issue in limelight again – Oh it seems elections are arriving any time soon

It appears as if the politicians have programmed their memory recall function, in such a way, that before every Central and State specific election they get pop-ups from their memory, reminding them that the right time for making false promises and igniting the Ayodhya issue has arrived. Subsequently, as and when, our votes will be locked in the voting machines these political parties shall very diligently store this issue at peace, not to be disturbed till the next election arrives.

Every time this issue comes into the picture there is a very high chance of occurrence of communal violence and religious riots. However, I guess nation’s unity is nowhere in the political agenda of such politicians and occurrence of the disturbance in the country hardly matters to these selfish souls. What all they care about is winning elections and fulfilling their personal agendas. God knows what all they are plotting for and what will be the after effects of such plans that originate from their sick mind.

It is a customary practise adopted by some of the political parties, since a very long time, with the very thought that they can fool the common men every time when they sensationalize such issues and eventually persuade common men to cast their vote in favour of such politicians. An ex-home minister of our country rightly said that “Common man have a very short memory”. Common men won’t remember the scams done and unfulfilled promises made in the past by the same politicians and indeed the common men will once again very happily let themselves get trapped in the false commitments of the politicians and the so-called contractors of religion.

In fact, the above statement of the ex-home minister is absolutely right, in the sense that we the common citizens of India don’t remember for long the past wrong deeds that have happened around us. As it is, we have a custom of forgiving others. But isn’t forgiving “habitual offender” foolishness on our part? Doesn’t it motivate the culprits, as well as, another newbie’s in this field to indulge more and more in such kind of illegal acts? It’s a high time we realize that a few non-worthy people can rule over us, simply because, we allow them to fool us and play with our emotions.

At times, I wonder whether these people have even a bit of humanity left in them or not. Sigh, they can fall to any level for accomplishing their agenda. Did they even realize that how risky it is to sensationalize this issue in the present circumstances? What a patriotic move by the political parties to bring Ayodhya issue at such time when relations with neighbouring countries have turned sour post-surgical strike. It’s the time when our leaders should be working on uniting the citizens against the enemies of our Motherland. However, just for the sake of winning elections, people are busy taking credit for military actions and don’t hesitate to sensationalize sensitive issues.

I do hope that irrespective of what these political parties and politicians think and try, we all should unite together and shouldn’t get mislead by such filthy thoughts. Let us all pledge that we won’t allow them to trap us in their anti-peace and anti-nation agendas anymore. Let’s not make their divide and rule policy successful, henceforth.

I do wish that all of us get the good sense and we all stay united and peacefully always.

God Bless you all!
